Grange insurance is a multi-billion dollar company providing property and casualty and life insurance in thirteen states in the U.S. The company markets primarily through its force of independent agents. Grange undertook a rebranding effort to ensure the company was positioned properly among its changing consumer demographics and agency force. Gallagher developed, planned and implemented the stakeholder research to gauge stakeholder investment and dedication to the brand. This included the name, taglines, and potential graphic elements associated with the brand. Gallagher conducted a series of focus groups throughout Grange’s service area among various constituent groups, i.e., agents, consumers, staff, peers. Gallagher supplemented the focus groups with online/written surveys to yield quantitative and qualitative results. The firm tabulated and presented recommendations to the Grange leadership, which helped guide a successful rebranding launch.
